"We Have to Pass the Bill So Rep. Mike Callton Can Find Out What's In It"
Michigan House Republican Mike Callton (District 87 - Barry County & Most of Ionia County)
ready to vote without reading bill that would create Michigan ObamaCare Health Exchange!
 
Apparently, we had a "Pelosi Moment" at the Health Policy Committee Meeting July 31, 2012. An attendee at the meeting reported that Rep. Callton, Committee Vice-chair, (and Brian Calley's hand picked successor) who is in favor of establishing an ObamaCare Health Exchange and did a presentation on Utah establishing an exchange, said in Committee that he has not read the Marleau bill (co-sponsored by Rick Jones, Roger Kahn, Mark Jansen, John Gleason (D)) which would establish an ObamaCare Health Exchange in Michigan.

Additionally, a news source quotes Rep. Callton as agreeing with the lead Democrat on the Committee, Rep. Lesia Liss
 
She said, "Yes. It's time to move. Time to go, yes and let's get this done."
 
Rep. Mike Callton is with her saying, "We can study this until the cows come home."
 

When Committee Chair Gail Haines said she has more questions, Callton said, "I'm ready to go".

I think we and especially his constituents in the 87th District described as "solid GOP" who elected him in 2010, need to ask him why he is in favor of bill he has not read and why he is joining hands and singing Kumbaya with the Committee Democrats in pushing for an ObamaCare Exchange instead of the prudent and meticulous approach of Chairwoman and fellow GOP Gail Haines?

And while we are at it, let's follow the money.

Oh lookie here, the top contributors to Mike Callton are.... Surprise!

  • Health Professionals $25,572
  • Insurance $6,150
  • Hospitals & Nursing Homes $5,875
  • And, for good measure, the MEA $5,625

We do agree with you, Mike, on one thing, "I'm ready to go" ....We are ready to have you go! Another ObamaCare sellout with a Primary in his future.
